Author Gina Rippon: “Gender and our Brains”
September 15, 2019, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Author Gina Rippon will discuss her book, which explores how recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and psychology research have helped debunk long-held beliefs that there are biological distinctions between female and male brains. Drawing on cutting edge research, Rippon presents the latest evidence which indicates that brains are like mosaics comprised of both male and female components, and that they remain plastic, adapting throughout the course of a person’s life
An honorary professor of cognitive neuroimaging at the Aston Brain Centre, Aston University, Birmingham, England, Rippon has spent decades researching the neuroscience of gender and her work has appeared in both scholarly and mainstream journals.
